A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Imaging API improperly handles objects in memory.

To exploit the vulnerability an attacker would have to convince a user to open a specially crafted .WIM file. The update addresses the vulnerability by modifying how the WIM service handles objects in memory.
